We are leaving today for Europe and of course I waited until the last minute to take down my Arrow antenna, which has been mounted outside for about a year.  But, when I attempted to unscrew the elements, they would not budge, even after receiving a big dose of WD-40.  And the elements are not that solid so it's not possible to use a great deal of force.

Is there some trick to unscrewing these things?
